That’s the word coming down from Danny O’Neil via Twitter at this time.
The link leads to a blurry photo and a caption that says Trufant is “out indefinitely with disk issue,” according to Mora. [Edit: Fixed a typo] This brings back scary memories of another Seahawk who had similar issues last season….
Sound off, everyone. Consider this an R-rated post, for obvious reasons.
Update: Sando adds to the story:
The news on cornerback Marcus Trufant‘s back might be more troubling. The disc injury that has sidelined him through camp is similar to what Matt Hasselbeck experienced last season. The difference is that the team knows the full nature of Trufant’s injury from the beginning, whereas Hasselbeck’s injury confounded specialists for several months.
The hope is that early detection could clear Trufant to return for the regular season or after the first six games if he remains on the physically unable to perform list.
Second Update, this one from Danny:
“It’s not anything that will need surgery,” Mora said of the injury, “It’s good that we found this out now rather than in the middle of the season and tried to push him through it because now we can make some decisions how to move forward.”
